    Oh, yeah. I used Italian bread crumbs instead of corn flakes. Also, people, try smashing crackers and use that for the breading. - 10/6/08

    this was great!! a good way to make the chicken crispy on the underside is to place the baking sheet on top of something; I place mine on top of a couple of souffle cups; the point is to allow heat to go underneath; the wire rack doesn't cut it. - 6/17/10

    I really like this dish. It was easy to make. Chicken was juicy and tender. So much flavor. Low calorie just add bake vegetables and you can have a dinner meal for under 200 calories. Make losing weight so much easier. - 9/26/08

    Very easy recipe and it tastes good! I actually found already crushed Kellog' corn flakes in the bread aisle, right next to bread crumbs. - 9/9/07

    I just made this recipe and it was amazing. I used seasoned salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder. As yummy as it was it might not make great leftovers. We let ours sit for about ten minutes before eating and they were a little less crispy than they were fresh out of the oven. Overall, five stars! - 8/2/10

    This is great! I added the same seasonings as are used in the recipe "Baked Pork Chops," paprika, oregano, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne pepper, dry mustard, and a pinch of salt. This is a great way to spice it up! - 1/18/08

    This is excellent. I used lemon pepper, a touch of salt, some pepper, and Strawberries bar-b-que seasoning. I put the seasoning in with the cereal and shook each piece to cover completely, will probably put on wire rack to get bottom crispy. - 1/6/10

  • Made this for supper tonight using the extra spices. Was very delicious. The only change I made was that I used Pam (instead of the butter spray) on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I don't think substituting the pam made much of a diff to the outcome of the recipe....Added to my recipe book.... - 5/3/14

  • Gonna have to give this one negative. It never got the crunchy texture I was hoping for out of a faux fried chicken. And the "breading" fell off very easily in addition to losing their crispiness - 10/9/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Very good recipe. I added some Italian bread crumbs to the corn flakes. I also put extra corn flakes on the bottom of the pan because everyone likes the cooked corn flakes by themselves! - 8/4/12

  • I will make this again. My husband and daughter especially liked it. I used store brand corn chex instead of flakes because I didn't have any. Turned out well, but need to figure out how to get the "crust" to stick better. - 1/21/12

  • My mom made this recipe quite often when i was growing up. It is called "Oven Fried Chicken" She used a whole chicken, skin on, dipped in 1 egg and then coated with cornflakes. She used a bread bag to shake the coating on. The underside is always soft due to contact with the pan. We enjoyed it. - 4/25/09

    This was only ok. Although the chicken came out very tender it tasted nothing like fried chicken. It tasted very bland to me (and I even added extra seasonings as suggested by others) and the coating was not crispy at all. It tasted like bland breaded chicken to me. - 2/24/08
